    And above means anything from above, not only from the air, it can also come from a tree or whatever is above you...

    Final:

    C.O.W. - #062: It Came From Above!

    Gumball
    (Bardus Luteolus Avis Globus)
    Mostly useless. That's probably the best description for the Mugball. Every once in a while these yellow furry ball-like creatures fall from the sky. How they got up there or why they fall down, no-one knows. Mugballs can't fly, though on their way down they flap their little wings like a madman on fire. They are fairy rigid and survive the landing with no problems whatsoever. Since the body of the Mugball is way too heavy for its legs it can't walk and simply sits around until it dies. The Mugball don't seem to be bothered about starving and make no effort at all to gather food or look for shelter. They usually die within a few weeks.

    Worried animal activists tried feeding them, and the Mugballs happily ate all the food that was presented to them. Even when well fed and taken care of, the Gumball remained totally inert and the animal lovers gave up after a while.

    People tried eating them. The taste of Mugball meat was compared to eating a three week old sock that has been thoroughly worn. People tried using their fur for various purposes, but when the Mugball dies it loses its hair almost instantly. All in all the Mugballs remain quite the mistery, and whenever they fall from the sky, people quietly ignore them and hope they go away.

    It came from below, made a quick turn, and came down from above.

    The topic brings to mind Evil Dead II... the hero from the sky... and an old computergame called 'It came from the desert'.
    Hm... so many choices... what will I bring down upon this round? I'll go out and invoke some thunder, while I think about it.

    C.O.W. - #062: It Came From Above!

    This creature has only just been discovered in a remote part of the british countryside. Due to its very nature it is understandable that it has remained inconspicuous for so long.

    Two years after its offical discovery it was named the Kawabunga Head hunter due to its unusal cry as its lets go of the cloud it has lived in most of its life (feeding on passing birds.) And drops towards the ground using its arms to steer in hope of landing on its favourite prey - balding men. It has exellent eyesight and so often hits its target.

    When its lands on the mans head it wraps its very strong front limbs over the eyes of its prey and stabs its tounge into the mans skull, its tounge contains a toxin that knocks its prey out almost immediatly. Not wanting to kill the man it only takes small bits of brain, resulting in the man waking up several hours later not being able to remember a thing and what most people would describe as a hangover.

    Once it has fed on human brain matter it will find a water source and lay its eggs or release sperm. Once these have been fertilized by a member of the opposite sex they will bind to a water molecule and eventually get evaporated into a cloud. The adult then dies and decomposes completely within a matter of hours.

    I like all these ideas in this forum! Like Michael Jaecks, I've got to admit to having the problem of being addicted, heh Anyhow, I did a bunch of quick doodles and have decided to try out a midget tree dwelling ant-eater that extends its ultra long tongue down from the branches to lap up a tasty morsel...

    ~edit~

    Okay, so after Moai showed me that the tree-dwelling anteater already exists I've decided to change my idea a little. After a bunch of sketches, this is what I've come up with! It looks pretty mean instead of cartoony so it's what my attempt this round will be.

    C.O.W. - #062: It Came From Above!

    SonoΦΦΦun! Things are just too crazy for me for the next few months so I'm going to have to pull out of these competitions for the next few months. I would like to wish everyone the very best though, and to give my word that I will return with a vengeance, possibly as late as next year. Thanks to everyone for the words of advice and inspiration here at Concept Art, as cheesy as it sounds, this place has seriously done wonders for me

    These winged reptiles are highly aggressive and not very intelligent. They can attack without warning and destroy a small village in a single fiery pass. It's only through the tools of domestication that man can hope to compete. If a wild pack should migrate to your region, it cannot be allowed to patrol freely, lest you become prey from above. Best to take control of a dragon and turn it's destructive power on your enemies.

    Had fun with 61, will have fun with 62! Count me in! Taking the crits on 61 seriously into account thx all!

    Hippo Skydivérius

    A strange twist of genetic confusion! Some hippo's have started growing wings! Ofcourse this creature's weight is no match to the puny wings that have grown out of it's back. Any attempt to fly therefor ends in a smallscale local earthquake (for some reason they got startled in there instinct too). Although local governement advices wearing safety helmets in the surroundings of breeding places of the Hippo Skydivérius, it is best to avoid any cliffside, hill or even human constructions like bridges. Normally this is a shy creature, but when the adrenaline rush, as a reaction on seeing an elevated position get's hold of the beast, one is better to take a serious distance between him and the Hippo Skydivérius.

    Warning: Do not enter Hippo Skydivérius' territories in mating season. The males intend to impress female Hippo's with their 'flying' skills. Nothing is safe in this period. Especially not Range Rover and Defender like jeeps, which are exactly big enough to be a good starterspoint for jumping down of.

    Avian Crapper

    Dear Friends,
    I think this is my first C.O.W. since the orange sea leviathan. Hope you guys get a kick out it!
    Regards,
    EtaCarinae

    C.O.W. - #062: It Came From Above!

    The Avian Crapper commonly known as the ‘Stool Pigeon’ is one of Australia’s most notorious dangerous animals. In spring it becomes fiercely territorial defending its clutch of small brown eggs with a unique dive bomb attack. Up to 90% of Australian have suffered an attack from the native bird, with direct hits to the eye not being uncommon.
    Plumage may vary from light tan to almost black and the bird is renown for its' loud and sometimes melodic song, often heard first thing in the morning.

    "If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world."

    Hm, vague topic, let's see if I can think of something that goes beyond worm-from-a-dark-cloud (No offense Dominus, I love your's).

    OK, here are some thumbs, sorted chronologically. Concentrating on the creatures environment first, then developing ideas of the creatures attack-method. The last one is a first draft, may change completely. The idea is to greate a creature that the victim won't recognize as a creature but as part of the environment (Giger's aliens, for example). But what I got now is too mainstream. I'll think about it, more tomorrow (hopefully).

    EDIT: My mind's empty. What's the deadline again

    Behold, the silky anteater. I don't know if it has an ultra-long tongue, though. Doing this image search reminded me just how awesome anteaters are.

    Some good thoughts already people.
    I to am adicted, I notice everyone who enters each week improving to.
    Dominus - F**k yeh! You must have whacked that one out pretty quikly... Er not sure that sounds clean... well done.

    On another note photobucket keeps shrinking my images by the time they get here. Can anyone recomend another image hoster? Thanks.

    Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.
